Google Hangout: A Conversation with Paul Polak
Link: The Business Solution to Poverty

We invite you to join us for the next in our series of Google Hangouts with Paul Polak, a true pioneer in harnessing business to fight poverty.

For the past 30 years, Paul has worked with thousands of farmers in countries around the world to help design and produce low–cost, income–generating products that have already moved more than 20 million people out of poverty.

Paul is the Founder of International Development Enterprises and of Windhorse International. His mission is to inspire a revolution in how companies design, price, market and distribute products to benefit the 2.7 billion customers who live on less than $2 a day, combining radically affordable technology with radically decentralized supply chains to earn profits serving bottom billion customers.

In his recent book with Mal Warwick, The Business Solution to Poverty: Designing Products and Services for Three Billion New Customers, he offers a bold and brilliant new market-based approach to end global poverty.

Join us for the next Google Hangout with Paul at 4pm London time / 11am New York time on Thursday 22 May. Paul will be answering questions about his book. Have a question? Please email
